Eye Adore: Dior 3 Couleurs Smoky

I thought that I’d end up passing these little beauties by, because they didn’t look like much in pictures. But when I saw the new Dior 3 Couleurs Smoky Palettes, I soon changed my mind. Each palette consists of a base color, a ‘smoky’ color, and a high shine ‘couture’ color.

The palette in ‘Smoky Khaki’ came home with me:

The top of this little genius compact slides back, and the top pops open to reveal the colors. Took me a minute to figure it out, I nearly dropped it trying to pop the top in traditional fashion. Fortunately for me, I have a bit of a learning curve…

The colors don’t look like much in the pan. But I’ll have you know that the base is a solid swatch of golden green, the ‘soft smoky’ is a dark khaki color, and the ‘couture smoky’ is a shimmering khaki wonder. Of all the color selections, this (and the black, which reminded me a lot of Chanel’s Mirifique) was my favorite.

With flash, the colors look a bit more ‘taupe’ on my skin. But if you remove the flash (at least in my pictures), the green really comes through:

Out of focus… SMH. But you get the general idea.
